The Registrant is unable to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019 (the “Form 10-K”), within the prescribed time without unreasonable effort or expense. The Registrant requires additional time to compile data and finalize its financial statements to be filed as part of the Form 10-K and assist its auditors in completing their audit in connection with the Form 10-K.
Additionally, the Registrant has been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has contributed to the delay in compiling and completing the Registrant’s Form 10-K, due in part to the disruptions in access to and timely exchange of information between officers, auditors, professional advisors and other support staff.
